This is how realistic a fake/replica Oviraptor egg looks

This would have been an excellent test for everyone to comment on, definitely a good fake.  Just points out how careful you need to be and attention to detail is a must..   For example, features like how the ornamentation of the broken shell fit together in both color and pattern.   Anything that looks slightly off should be avoided.  Also another flag that has been stated many times by others is to avoid Asian sellers, just too risky.

Good and informative thread. Though shouldn't this be in the "is it real?" subforum?

Wouldn't it be ironic if the fakers were reading these threads to improve their methods?:headscratch:

 

Other than the previously mentioned irregularities, the thing that stands out to Me is the curvature of the shell fragments do not match their position on the egg. (especially on the end.)

This could easily fool most collectors!  Thanks for pointing it out .  Hopefully @ynot is wrong with the fakers reading our threads and guides on fake eggs!
